Yes I will gladly pay 79k as it stands!#mazdarxvision
Would you pay $79,000 for a Mazda? What if it could dance like Michael Jackson and sprint like Usain Bolt? Yes, the answer is definitely yes.

One of the better comparison on YouTube! S7 Edge Killed it in all segments! I don't own either phones...waiting for the Note 7. Tho ZTE was brought to my attention due to it's "cheap" price for top hardware used.

SHOUTING maybe there's hope after all? (still SHOUTING)
“If you look at the Ferrari 275 GTB or the Ferrari 330, and all those Italian cars through the late 50s, 60s and 70s, they were very pure, very clean and very exciting,” explains Mazda’s design director, Kevin Rice. “That was the philosophy of Italian design. The modern world is busier and more exciting, but we respect those values of purity and beauty. They were valid then, and – if nobody else wants to do it – we want to resurrect those values,...

The road to water and dust resistance on the #GalaxyS7 and #GalaxyS7edge

The Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge are designed to be water and dust resistant. Samsung rose to the challenge of addressing one of the largest pain points for consumers by developing an innovative technology that didn’t interfere with the beauty of the phone’s design.

We sat down with Suk Chul Park and Jung Min Choi, senior engineers in the Mechanical R&D team, to ask them about the challenges and rewards of making the Galaxy S7 dust and water resistant.

Q. What differentiates a water and dust resistant phone from other devices on the market?

Choi: Normally, when a mobile phone is exposed to water, the liquid leaks into the body, eroding its hardware and causing electrical shorts. These phones are designed with special materials or tapes that safeguard them when they are exposed to small amounts of water. However, these measures cannot protect them against larger quantities of water.

In contrast, water and dust resistant phones are equipped with a more advanced technology that prevents moisture from reaching their inner workings. This technology allows people to use the phone safely, even in very wet environments.

Q. What is most notable about the water and dust resistant features of the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge?

Park: Most other water and dust resistant phones come with bulky detachable covers or a clunky design, but the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge offer excellent protection without sacrificing the aesthetics of the phone.

To ensure exceptional water and dust resistance, we conducted rigorous experiments to find the right materials to seal the device’s USB port without using protective caps. We were looking to do this without compromising the device’s compact look and feel.

It is definitely not easy to apply the water and dust resistance to a mass-produced flagship smartphone, but to design a metal-body phone without a cap was a huge challenge as well.

Q. What technology did you use to accomplish this?

Choi: To start, we looked at making potentially vulnerable parts more water and dust resistant. Non-corrodible materials like Nickel and Platinum were selected for frequently used parts such as the USB port or earphone jack, not to harm the functionality.

Another point was to use special elastic material during assembly for sealing to block the moisture. When assembling individual parts like USB port, earphone jack or SIM card tray, there has to be a slight hiatus. Special silicon-type material is used to close that gap to prevent water from getting into the phone.

Q. What unique development challenges did you have to tackle when making the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge?

Choi: Finding the right liquid-sealing material was probably the biggest challenge. We needed a material that was fairly solid to repel water, but also flexible enough to function as a sealant.

We also needed it to be easily removable to allow people to make repairs to the device, and also to ensure it would not be affected by temperature and humidity changes. Finding the right materials involved a lot of trial and error.

Park: One of those efforts was to apply water and dust resistant feature within the limited bezel space in order to maintain its size.

In particular, the Galaxy S7 edge has an extremely narrow bezel and curved display which made it impossible to apply water protective tape around the edge. To maintain and highlight the curved display of the Galaxy S7 edge, a different approach was needed. The material and location of the water protective tape were changed and liquid sealing material was used for the curvy area and to connect the taped part. The curved display is also made up with water resistant material.

Q. What did you need to do to enable functionality without negatively affecting the devices’ aesthetic appeal?

Park: Through our research, we were able to develop ultra-thin water protective tape that provides high levels of water and dust resistance. We also developed a special sealant that can protect against water in both flat and curvy parts of the devices.

Special connection technology was also used to seal the space between the device’s metal frame and plastic parts for the antenna placement, replacing the plastic resin method used in previous devices. We also used non-corrodible materials and an erosion-free coating to protect the exposed parts of the device from humidity.

Q. Is it possible to use the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge underwater? Can users take them to the waterpark or the beach?

Choi: It won’t present any problems if you use these devices under fresh water for a short time, but it is recommended that you do so according to the product specifications. In fact, the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge are certified with an IP68 rating, which is the highest rating available for water and dust resistance of electronic appliance. However, ratings do not guarantee a device’s performance beyond the specified depth of water, or in liquids other than water.

We would recommend against using the phones for longer periods of time under high-pressure water taps, or in the ocean or other saltwater environments.

Even if +Huawei managed to delete the exif from the photo "taken" by the #huaweip9 , people will undoubtedly question how a camera phone can produce such a detailed and bokeh rich picture! So much so, they will be force to reveal the truth no matter what. SMH +Huawei Mobile +CanonUSA 
I’m not entirely sure what they thought they were doing when Huawei posted this shot to Google Plus. Did they forget to rip the EXIF data out of it before doing so? Or did they just not realise that Google told the world exactly what camera an image was shot with? There’s been a lot of talk [...]

"What Might Go Wrong: The rotary engine has a well-earned reputation for low thermal efficiency, which translates to poor fuel mileage. If Mazda fails to make major strides reducing gas (and oil) consumption, sports-car customers will be hesitant to embrace the RX-9 no matter what it brings to the speed-and-handling party."

Bullshit! Let me deal with the issues..I want those issues :)
Assuming it happens, this rotary revival could be a serious disruptor. Read more at Car and Driver.
